The mounting bolt is snapped off or the pulley bolt is snapped off?

The bolt that holds the tensioner. Got nervous, sent it to English Auto in Odenton, MD. I do not want to mess up the threading, they got it instantly. It is a very good shop in this area. I figure it is wise to have them take a look as I have not had this rover for long.

I realize that many on here do their own work, but English Auto is awesome. 975.00 for replacement of the pulleys and tensioner and working out the bolt, a coolant flush, oil change, pulling off the brush bar that is a piece of crap, and blowing out the drains in the sunroof. If you are in the DC Metro Area, I highly recommend them. Fair price for serious work.

I started pulling the coil conversion off my parts truck, managed to get the front pulled in about 1&1/2 hrs. Snapped a couple bolts but nothing crazy

Does anyone recognize the make of the conversion? The machined aluminum lower adapter looks like a decent part

Could be. Ride quality between the kits really varied depending on the springs. Some folks used some really bad spring rates that caused a really crummy ride

It's very hard to tell what conversion kit this is especially based on the aluminum spring adaptors.
That style is not unique to ToddCo, and almost every vendor offers the same with their kits (or separately).

For example
> Range Rover Coil Spring Conversion Kit Heavy
> https://www.roversnorth.com/ProductD...e=3&eq=&key=it
> https://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9520LB
> https://www.arnottindustries.com/c-2...nge-rover-p38a
